Just a quick update, I have one of the four corners mostly done. There is some couching and a little backstitching and the beads, that's what goes in the holes in the blue, gold beads. You can see the gold that I didn't rip out yet in the coil by the tail. It seems just a little too bright to me. I'm not much into gold anyway. Maybe that's part of the problem. Next month I'm on the road for two weeks and am taking two smaller projects so this will be put aside for a little while.
